Andrea was born and raised in the Chicago Northern suburbs. Her love and passion for animals led her to a career working as a veterinary assistant and practice manager caring for domestic animals, exotics, and wildlife. She was an advocate for several local rescue groups and assisted in pet education for new pet owners.
Her love and passion for emergency medicine is what eventually brought her to Premier Veterinary Group in 2006. She advanced her career overtime to nurse manager, and now holds the position of hospital director.
Andrea is a mom of four. In her free time, she enjoys roller skating, hiking, reading, and relaxing around a bonfire with family and friends.
